Following the 49ers 31-21 win, Anthony Davis sent out a pretty spectacular tweet with an x-ray he had taken after the game:
How could i hold with a finger broken in half? lollockerz.com/s/264301925— Bam Davis(@AnthonyDavis76) November 26, 2012
Good news though, 49ers fans:
Don't panic, i have 9 other fingers. lol— Bam Davis(@AnthonyDavis76) November 26, 2012
First off, given the nature of finger bones, that would appear to be a dislocation, as opposed to a break, correct? I'm not a doctor so feel free to correct me. Either way, that's a pretty gnarly looking x-ray. Of course, I've never broken anything (knock on wood) so I guess I haven't had a chance to see too many x-rays like this. I also ask in part because I'm curious what kind of recovery process is involved. My guess is we'll see him with some kind of cast or brace or whatever against the Rams.
Joe Staley shot out a tweet a little later after the game that summed things up:
Also @anthonydavis76 is a beast. Played the whole second half with a broken finger. He is an effin stud tackle— Joe Staley (@jstaley74) November 26, 2012
